No Stars For the worlds most predatory/scamming/thieving corporation on planet earth
No thanks to [Name Removed], Apple have become an avarice plunderer who have climbed down the wrong stalk a few too many times with no checks. They somehow remain immune to any due process or consequences of their thieving modus despite the countless current and ex Apple users who have reported breaches in their contracts and money fraudulently withdrawn from their bank accounts. Do not give apple your banking details. (I’m still chasing over 2k of money stolen) (they will blame members of your family that don’t exist and gaslight you to no end...) (I won’t post my bank statement on this site because it’s not safe to and there’s PAGES) Get stuffed Apple. Your tech is crap; your workers are moronic and your products are fundamentally flawed. Stop exploiting men women and children in your dodgy sweatshops and quit lying to innocent users when you’re called out for fraud. Android are taking over the market share because there is an Apple exodus going down en mass and it won’t slow down. Lo
Bad customer service
I purchased a hemmes Apple Watch. I had problems with the watch. Apple replaced it with a faulty watch. So two months later and I was told I could get a refund if steps are taken. We did it all. Then I was told the watch needs to be returned. If faulty then a full refund. I then received an email that they replaced tge watch. It arrived opened and not sealed. Contacted Apple and told them. They said because they replaced the watch that I can’t get a refund. That’s not what we agreed on. They told me that even though the watch was opened that it...’s not damaged so end of story. I have an email from Apple US saying they should refund and am taking them to court. You pay so much fir Apple products and especially hemmes. I have a lot of Apple stuff but I will not use Apple now as you can not trust them. I’ve never been lied to like Apple has. See you in court Apple.
Super fast when buying, non-existent when you require support
i bought a macbook pro and within the first 6 months I had to replace the screen and the keyboard
when the screen failed for the second time I complained and they agreed to a replacement.
Before doing that they made me spend an hour online with a technician followed by an instore examination of the computer to confirm the fault.
Following that I spoke to 3 different "senior advisors" at Apple, each time having to explain what the situation was.
They promised a courier would come to collect my MacBook in a week's time (on a Friday).

Worst Customer Service I have ever experienced
My 12 year old daughter needed a laptop for high school so I purchased a macbook air. After 5 months, it stopped working completely. Faulty product. It took over a week to get an appointment with Apple Penrith. I arrive and they state if I show them invoice they would replace the faulty product. I went back with my receipt, they went and got new laptop, asked my daughter to pick a colour, put it in bag for us then out of no where said we can't replace your laptop as the computer won't let us. This was beyond ridiculous and I left with my fault...y product. Spoke with about 6 different Snr advisors who were meant to look after my complaint. None of them ever returned my calls or emails and I would ring back and get another snr advisor. Anyway, after 3 weeks, they finally decide to send me a new laptop through TNT which is going through China and I've been told to expect lengthy delays due to TNT's backlog (that's a whole other story). I could not just go to an apple store or get a new one sent to me from online store and pick up replacement as I was desperate as daughter was missing out on school. My daughter has now been 5 weeks without a laptop due to the product being faulty, and I still don't have it. There is no complaints process and Apple do not care one bit about customer service. Just got to accept their disgusting service. There is nothing I can do but wait. Their Snr advisors are a joke, they ignore you so you ring back and get a new Snr advisor, WORST SERVICE EVER. Replacing the faulty product should not have been this difficult. If they had of made just a little effort and showed some sort of service, I'd have a replaced laptop now.
The Death of Apple
What made Apple stand out from the others was it’s great customer service and quality products. Apple is a far cry from when Steve Jobs ran the show. Today’s customer service is mean spirited, being more concerned with profit margins than providing an outstanding service it was once renowned for. Waiting weeks (or like my current order months) for your orders to arrive..then having to deal with TNT couriers. Then there is the exorbitant price hikes for new products that have barely evolved and using technology that has been utilised by other b...rands for months, there is nothing exciting or innovative coming out of Apple. As a loyal customer of 15 years and having spent tens of thousands of dollars with this company, I am unfortunately, neck deep in the Apple ecosystem. But, with each year my loyalty is dissolving, I am fed up with the disappointment I get when dealing with Apple. My next phone will not be a iPhone.... I am going into Apple rehab and weening myself off the Apple ecosystem.

Apple online MacBook Pro
Never buy any device over Apple online! My MacBook Pro had a issue until it got replaced it took 1 month, then the trouble started with getting the money refunded. After Apple online has the device it takes 4 to 6 weeks to get the money back!!! It will go back to a bank account not credit card. If you need a computer and have to wait to buy one, you have to fork out the money yourself again, until you receive the refund....Apparently its easier if you go to the store and buy your device in Store. If any issue/s arise you get your refund faster....meaning you can replace your device faster.
